Influenced by the natural world and the ocean environment.
Fluke’s unique range of jewellery and sculptural work reflects the original designer's lifelong passion for the natural world and connection with the ocean environment. From his original Birsay workshop, on the spectacular north west coast of the Orkney mainland, Roger created bangles, pendants, bracelets, rings and charms that captured the form of a variety of wild creatures.
Although best known for his signature whale fluke pieces, dolphins, rays, seahorses, hares, shells, seabirds and starfish all found their way into Roger’s much sought after work.
London born Roger worked in the jewellery trade – he owned his own shops – before making the transition to a full-time craftsman, inspired by regular ocean voyages studying cetaceans.
Entirely self-taught, Roger strived to accurately depict his subject matter - his flukes are all species specific – believing the natural beauty of wildlife needs no embellishment.
More recently Roger had been creating a range of stunning and intricate marine sculptures, using silver, copper, driftwood and stone. Demand for these pieces from around the world means there’s now a year’s waiting list to have one made.
Fluke's full range of jewellery is available online at their website www.flukejewellery.com or from the new Burray workshop, where visitors are also welcome.
